An Original "Dinner Theater" Event for the Foodie Comes to the Fringe Festival

Taste the unique partnership of Italian food between local restaurant and theatrical performance. This culinary journey includes two parts: a performance of Debrianna Mansini's The Meatball Chronicles and a meal by local Italian restaurant Casta Diva this September 10-12 in the 2017 Fringe Festival.

With its own twist on dinner theater, before or after the show you can taste a dish inspired by The Meatball Chronicles at Casta Diva! Created and performed by film and TV actress Debrianna Mansini (Crazy Heart, Breaking Bad, and Better Call Saul) she narrates kneading the dough and thickening the sauce to family Italian recipes of pastas, calzones, pies, and of course meatballs that will leave your mouth watering. With this guiding your tastebuds, you can then experience a local, grass fed, farm to table, Italian meal prepared by Casta Diva chef Stephen Vassalluzzo.

The Meatball Chronicles reveals Mansini's Italian immigrant recipes and the complex ways that families cope, laugh, grieve, and show their love through food. A perfect match at Casta Diva, Vassalluzzo notes that his recipes, including homemade breads and pastas, are inspired by "the way my Grandmother did it." Together The Meatball Chronicles (at CSz Philadelphia at the Adrienne Theater 2030 Sansom St) partnership with Italian BYOB Casta Diva (227 South 20th Street)- right around the corner from each other- will result in a special dish inspired by the show, to share with audiences. Mangia!
